If you, or someone you know, is looking for an entrance into the great and honorable world of smoked pork and it's related cookery, then this book is for you.  The ideal audience for the Smoking Bacon ; Hog Cookbook is likely someone who has just received, or is about to receive, a smoker and needs good directions for getting started with bacon, pork sausage, ribs, or loin without getting too bogged down in mastering the fine details and science of BBQ.  Those who are more experienced might find themselves quickly wanting more, but that's okay...everyone starts somewhere and Bill Gillespie is here to help folks understand the fundamentals.

And, once you've finished your first cook, Mr. Gillespie is there again with more inspiration on what to do with all that meaty goodness.  From a sausage and bacon snack called Pig Shots that will make your tailgating friends swoon with delight to a sweet and salty maple-bacon bread pudding that will curl your toes, there's a lot of cooking fun to be had for everyone (who isn't vegetarian).
